Pink Torpedo buoy recovered – Kidds Beach

One of our first Pink Torpedo buoys that were put up at Kidds beach was nearly lost. Were it not for the bright colour it might not have been found.

Janice Hurly sent us this wonderful story on how it was recovered..

On Thursday 24 August,  East London coastline had the highest seas it has seen for 30 years.

The image shows the entrance onto the Kidd’s Beach main beach. The bathrooms were covered by the waves and the sea and lagoon became one.

On the rescue mission they found the rope had become entangled in roots and weeds which had helped to keep it anchored. We managed to drag it to land and rescue the buoy, which will go back up when the sea has calmed down this weekend.
